Macklemore- Same Love

    The song "Same Love" has an extremely powerful message. We need to stop discriminating others and finding differences between each other. There is nothing wrong with being different and we should not be put down or looked at differently if we like someone of the same gender. This song also talks about how we do not recognize how many hurtful things we say. There is a line in the song which says "Man, that's gay" gets dropped on the daily". This shows that we don't notice how words can actually hurt. We just go around saying these inappropriate things without notice the impact and affect it has on others. Also, the word "gay" should not be used to separate each other. We use the word "gay" as an insult when there is nothing wrong with it. People are always going around saying "Wow your so gay" or "That movie was gay". Why does the word "gay" have to be an insult? The song also says "It's human rights for everybody, there is no difference! Live on and be yourself". We have the right to love anyone. Whether they are the same gender or different, there really is no difference. It does not matter if you are gay because that is who you are. You do not need to change due to others opinions. You need to be yourself. If you are gay, you are no different than someone who isn't. We should not set people aside because they are gay, there is nothing wrong with being gay and you need to be yourself. We should never let others opinions get to us because they mean nothing. All that matters is that you are staying true to yourself and not being blinded by our society. In conclusion, the song "Same Love" talks about being yourself and understanding that you do not need to change and others do not have the right to tell you to change because you are gay.
In my opinion, we need to make more movies to spread awareness and those movies need to show us that there is no difference between being gay or not.
